The year 2020 has introduced new and unusual realities all over the world. The global COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent quarantine and self-isolation have meant that millions of us work remotely these days. As a result, we are relying on tech-nology and various software solutions more than ever to get things done. A new study by Business Facilities shows that “Business VPN usage skyrocketed in Canada, Austria, and the Netherlands, growing by over 200%.”

We often write about the complexity of custom software projects — the need for clearly outlined requirements, the carefully drafted roadmaps, and the flexibility to make adjustments when the developers encounter obstacles or the client requests a change. So with all those moving pieces, how can a software vendor and a client be sure they understand the scope and cost of the work? The key is the service level agreement (SLA), which is a contract between vendor and specifies the level of service expected during the engagement.
A software development team includes a variety of roles, each with unique responsibilities. You may hear these titles being thrown around as you search for a custom software vendor, but without a clear understanding of each role and how it operates, it can be difficult to make a confident decision. So, let’s take a look at the different roles and responsibilities on a software de-velopment team.
To successfully deliver an application to the client does not mean simply to complete the application. Rather, closing out a project is a process of ensuring every point of the contract has been executed, all accompanying documentation prepared, and all work on the project is complete. Only once all the project goals are met — and the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed — can we consider the project to be complete. This usually coincides with the moment the project is launched and support starts.
Owing to the fact that testing is becoming a part of programming, developers are able to correct errors at the very early stages of development. This allows to decrease the risk of defects occurring in the end product. The earlier the process of testing is started, the earlier possible errors are found and the less it costs to correct them.
Without proper quality control, software products can cause significant harm to both the company that orders the development and owns the software, and to the end users. Financial loss and loss of brand confidence are just some of possible consequences.
